  • My edema lasted nearly a month with each of my kids and I ebf. My weight with dd didn't come off til I weaned. Weight only came off with ds when I did weight watchers for nursing moms (took about 10 weeks for 25 lbs). Your diet can have a lot to do with it. When I started the WW, I upped my fruits and veggies considerably and lost a ton of water weight in the first couple weeks. Be patient. Everyone is different. Every pregnancy/post pregnancy is different. You are older than you were with your first (even if not by much) as well. Just concentrate on eating the best foods and staying active (I walk trails). The rest will come.
